Visual Development produces films and motion graphics for NGOs, environmental organizations, public and private foundations around the world. We have the ability to embrace all aspects of the production workflow from beginning to end.
FILMS TELL STORIES, DESCRIBE,
PROVOKE AND INSPIRE CHANGE.
THEY SHIFT THE HORIZONS OF THE POSSIBLE.
Both David and Jessica are good listeners and interpret well the needs of the client in their features. Both are very friendly, client focused and enormously engaged.

What I liked about Visual Development’s style of working is that it is very professional without losing the personal feeling. They are flexible and think with us step by step. We certainly feel the videos are useful. We include the links to the films in many communications introducing our programs and for general visibility.
Working with Jessica and David is very pleasurable. Both are warm, friendly and unpretentious personalities, broadly interested and driven by a passion to make the world a better place. They are genuinely interested in people and their enthusiasm for their work is contagious. The videos that Jessica and David produced for us have been a great help to get our message across, Jessica’s drawings of our method of working have also been used in presentations and proposals for institutional donors, mainly to explain things in a simple and easy manner. Sometimes a picture or a drawing tells more than words.

High end professional videos technically, but also in the way they manage to make the program come alive. Well prepared with questionnaires and understanding of the program. They were clear on what was and what was not possible. During production there was a good balance of professional view and flexibility to realize the different videos so as to serve the purpose they were made for.

When filming with Visual Development in Eastern Congo immediately recognized skill, drive and enthusiasm. David and Jessica are experienced international professionals and have worked in the most difficult environments. They push the limits to obtain the best footage, but will always do so in good judgement of the technical and logistical feasibility and security situation. The evaluations after each filming day were extremely useful to get the most out of the team.

The video work of Visual Development is offering us a highly inspiring way to have communities tell their story - a story that deserves to be heard. We are partnering in the true sense, exploring and adventuring together in a way that gives energy to all parties and allows us all to give our best.

Bien sûr j’étais très satisfait du travail que nous avons fait ensemble, j’ai beaucoup apprécié la qualité des images et le professionnalisme dans la reconstitution de la vidéo. J’étais à l’aise, et j’étais fier de partager mes connaissances et expérience avec le monde. J’ai apprécié le montage du studio malgré les conditions particulièrement difficiles.
Program Manager for Health and Education
Quality of the work was excellent; the final product was nuanced, captured and exemplified all the aspects we had requested for and more… Very passionate and knowledgeable, considerate, patient and respectful of varying views and ideas; this was clearly demonstrated in the in-depth , probing questions you asked, your expertise was very evident.
Director for Women’s Leadership for Peace & Security
The animation products developed were of very high quality and also very useful. I believe this was the best tool we've ever had to efficiently explain monitoring and evaluation results. The experience showed flexibility and ease as we made our way through creating the animation long distance (we were in Spain).
